    It is my intent, and within my ability, to stop the aggression in 1/4 second, and the Glock affords that ability.

    If the Glock trigger is pulled, it shoots. So one must be familiar with the Glock and if the shooter is not comfortable with its particular features, they should probably choose another brand.

    PS: a carry weapon should have a hard pull (5-8 lbs) and this helps; when the adrenalin is flowing, a hard trigger will not matter
    Familiarity with your firearm is EXTREMELY important. In my classes, I tell my students to be be more familiar with their firearms than their wife, girlfriend, husband, boyfriend, etc. Reason behind this is that the firearm can kill in an instant, while the wife, girlfriend, husband, boyfriend,etc. can kill you, but would more likely nag you to death over time.

    A little humor is used to break the mood, but it helps to reinforce a very valuable lesson in safe firearms handling.

    A question? >>> Sort of topic as discussed here.
    Not debating the reason why, but if a 1911 was carried with one in the chamber and the hammer down you went to cock the hammer (like a revolver) and as doing so the hammer slipped from your thumb would that cause the gun to fire.
    Thanks and excuse my ignorance and laziness.
    No doubt you probably posted this question as sarcasm (as most gun owners would / should know the answer), unfortunately I did not know and I own (2 Kimber, 1 Springfield, 1 Colt, and 1 Para) five 1911's. So, for all of you that do not know, this is the answer I came up with testing my 1911's.

    No, it is IMPOSSIBLE for a 1911 to fire IF "(as you were cocking the hammer with the thumb of the hand that was holding the gun"), the hammer slipped or fell back. As a matter of fact, it took me three or four times of trying to get it to fall back without locking back completely, and then, when it did go forward, it only went to halfcock (safety). The only way to get it to fire, is to purposely "Squeeze the handle (safety), Squeeze the trigger, and then Use the thumb on your other hand to pull the trigger back and then let it go.
    Mr. John (Browning) got it right with this one; that is why, when you see 1911 owners carry, they are usually carrying "Cocked and Locked".

    Just like Mr. Gaston (Glock) got it right, and all Glocks are designed to be carried "Glocked and loaded".

    Cute. How original.
    Seriously, Having never fired one I have nothing against the gun. So long as the shooter is competent, responsible, safe, and (either the shooter and/or the gun) brings more competent, responsible, and safe people to the shooting sports and/or responsible, legal, Concealed Carry, the better.
